Voters in Denver have a chance to make cannabis history—again—tomorrow when deciding on a measure that will allow allow “most businesses [in the city] to establish certain designated areas or designated venues in which marijuana could be consumed.”

As Maureen Mehan writes in HIGH TIMES:

The fine print in the initiative requires a business to apply for a license from the city and get approval from at least one registered neighborhood organization. Smoking venues cannot be within 1,000 feet of  places where “children congregate” and must still conform to the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act, meaning someone couldn’t just light up a joint inside, but could vape and consume edibles indoors.

The latest poll numbers show an incredibly close race in Arkansas, where Issue 6: The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment maintains a 49-47% lead, with 4% still undecided. Voter turn-out will be key to giving Arkansas citizens with a doctor’s recommendation legal access to cannabis at state-licensed dispensaries. So contact your friends and family in Arkansas and encourage them to vote for kindness, compassion and cannabis.

Legalization is looking good with the stoner-comedy star demographic.

Reformers in North Dakota hope a last-minute infusion of campaign cash from the Drug Policy Alliance can push their  volunteer-led medical marijuana initiative to victory. As Amanda Crawford reported for HIGH TIMES:

Measure 5, the North Dakota Compassionate Care Act, marks the first time voters in that state will weigh in on the issue.“There are North Dakotans in pain with serious ailments and they think this can help,” said Ray Morgan, who is co-chairman of the campaign backing the measure. The act would allow patients suffering from cancer, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and other debilitating conditions to buy up to three ounces of marijuana from a non-profit compassion center regulated by the state. For patients who live more than 40 miles from a center, the patient or designated caregiver could grow up to eight plants in an enclosed and locked facility.

November 7 – 4:20PM Eastern

Polls show an incredibly close race in Arizona’s race to legalize cannabis for all adults. As Sam Harris-Brown reports for HIGH TIMES:

The most recent poll shows support for legalization has a lead of just one percentage point.

Those opposing legalization reported Friday that they’ve spent $4.9 million—$4 million of which went toward media purchases in October alone—and that they had $740,000 left to spend. During the same period, the campaign to legalize marijuana only spent $1.5 million on TV ads.

The imbalance between those big figures reflects the state of the campaigns in Arizona, with the opposition getting huge infusions of cash, late in the cycle. Some of the donors have questionable interests in marijuana remaining illegal, like prison contractors and opioid manufacturers.
